Baking in Berlin

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

Berlin was the stage for another European Athletics Championships and we sent crew out there to film behind the scenes.  With the UK and Europe baking under the sun, temperatures on one day reached 38 degrees, pushing even the fittest athletes to the limit. Luckily we didn’t need to be as fit to film them! The […]

Blown away by Beijing

Wednesday, August 15th, 2018 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

It’s pretty amazing when you think about it. A city making history by hosting both the Summer and the Winter Olympic Games. In the space of 14 years. Turning the iconic Water Cube venue from swimming…into curling. Or a Basketball Stadium into an Ice Hockey venue. Following hot on the heels of the hottest July […]

Sled Driver

Monday, April 9th, 2018 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

I folded my tray away, put my seat back in the upright position, and looked out of the window as the 787 Dreamliner positioned itself to land at Oakland Airport, California.             The SR-71, or Blackbird, or ‘Sled’ as it was affectionately known. Mach 3 (over 2,000 miles an hour […]

PyeongChang 2018

Monday, April 9th, 2018 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

It’s 5.30am, and we’re up in the mountains at Phoenix Park in PyeongChang, South Korea, where all the cool winter sports like the Half-pipe and Slope-style hang out. The sky is orange. It’s going to be a beautiful day. There’s just one problem. Well two actually. It’s –20 degrees, and there’s no getting away from […]

We Go Gaming

Friday, January 26th, 2018 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

Wordmark has delved into the wonderful world of YouTube and gaming to produce a 12 part series for the Olympic Channel called Gamers Vs. We had to track down exotic characters inhabiting this world like Razzbowski, As2piK, Ddotty, PapaDog, King Koon, NettyPlays and Tomohawk. These guys run their own social media channels with millions of […]

“Minus” Everything in PyeongChang

Monday, January 15th, 2018 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

Peter, our creative director, has recently got back from an eventful trip to PyeongChang, South Korea, where he was filming the preparations for the Winter Olympics. Here is his report. I’ve got packing a suitcase for a long haul shoot in Korea down to a fine art. Snow boots, thermals, gloves, three pairs of jeans, […]

Hot and Cold in PyeongChang

Thursday, March 2nd, 2017 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

It may have been minus 10 on the slopes, but the welcome – and spicy Dak-Kalbi  – was warm as. It’s one year to go until PyeonChang 2018, the biggest Winter sports event on the planet, and I was lucky to be filming in the very heart of the Test events as a city gets […]

3 Refugees – 3 Extraordinary Stories

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

We were set the challenge of filming in three refugee camps in Jordan, Kenya and Colombia within a month to tell the extraordinary stories of three refugees. This was a major logistical challenge that involved working closely with UNHCR. Each refugee had a story that humbled you and more importantly humanized the refugee crisis that […]

Our Rio Adventure

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

Worldmark pretty much de-camped to Rio for the summer with David, Peter and John all heading out there to film behind the scenes. Some of us were there 36 days straight and whilst it was very hard work, it was a great experience. We had 5 crews shooting in Rio and a big thank you has […]

Rio to Bracknell

Thursday, April 14th, 2016 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

Peter’s next assignment was an ice rink in Bracknell. This time filming with a talented young female  Ice Hockey player,  Verity Lewis. The location may be different and certainly not as dangerous but a similar scenario plays out. A run down venue with a group of dedicated coaches who are helping kids from 5  to […]

Going deep into a Rio Favela

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016 // worldmark // Posted in Uncategorized

Peter recounts his recent experience filming in Rio. On a stiflingly hot day in March, I found myself sitting in a packed mini-bus full of local camera crew, in the forecourt of a petrol station at the entrance to the most dangerous favela in Rio de Janeiro. We were there to film a powerful and […]
